Crop Multiplication -- Out Teach

Engage:

Point out a rectangular space in the garden roughly 4x8 ft. if possible and ask students if they know how many carrots can be grown in that space. Let them guess and then inform them that the answer is 512 (divide this number for smaller spaces if needed).

Inform the students that this can be figured out by dividing up the space into smaller squares called square feet. Let them know that they will be practicing using square feet gardening to figure out how much of other crops can be grown in a space.
